Empower Future Generations of Conservationists
At Amazon Conservation, we envision a thriving Amazon that sustains the full diversity of life. Integral to achieve this, we believe a thriving Amazon starts with empowering people, especially the youngest generations of future forest friends. Sign PetitionSign Petition
For more than 20 years, Amazon Conservation has worked on the ground in Peru and Bolivia. Our focus on protecting wild places, empowering local people, and putting science and technology to work has been shaped by the people and land where we began.
Our innovative programs allow local leaders like Rosa Quete to help establish protected areas where education, conservation, and play come together to make a lasting impact on young learners.
In the community of Motacusal in the Bolivian Amazon, Rosa Quete helped establish and, today, helps manage the Bosque de Niños (Children's Forest), which she hopes will serve as an example of effective sustainable agroforestry practices for youth and a source of knowledge sharing between generations.
Motacusal is the first community in Bolivia with this type of forest, which covers over 116 acres of forest set aside strictly for the children of Motacusal. With access to their own protected area, the children can experience first-hand all that the forest provides and gain a better understanding of the importance of protecting their forests and resources for the present and future health of the greater environment around them.
With your support, we can continue to promote education as a means to empower future leaders - especially young women - to preserve the forest's natural biodiversity through sustainable agroforestry.
